You can’t work all day long. I get most of my knitting time in the evening when I’m winding down for the night. I’ve been working on both Glenda’s socks and the pink and brown socks.
One sock finished! I just started the second one 2 days ago. I actually kind of like having the long section of leg and then the long section of the foot in front of me. It’s really easy for on the go knitting.
The first Gentleman’s Fancy Sock is maybe half way done. I like how this yarn is working with this pattern. I’ve shortened the leg and will shorten the foot to fit me better and also so I don’t run out of yarn. If that’s not inspiration enough…
Look what my Mom brought me for Valentine’s Day. Koigu! Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Worsted! I’m so excited to try the Koigu. I don’t have a pattern in mind yet, maybe a simple sock with a contrasting heel and toe. This is the second time my Mom has picked out a sock yarn that I’ve been wanting to try, but haven’t yet bought myself (the other was Mountain Colors Bearfoot). 🙂 The Lorna’s is a favorite after using it for Fetching wristwarmers. I love this color too. Maybe a One Skein Wonder? The yarn color choices were inspired by a really neat coffee mug.
I nearly forgot the books. Socks Socks Socks which I kept telling myself to borrow from the library and Twisted Sisters. Wow is there a ton of inspiration in both of these. I can hardly wait to spend more time planning future projects from both of these books.
